| Everything I love about unorthodox parodies
Eric Jonrosh's (Will Ferrell) The Spoils of Babylon is the definition of quality spoofing. The campy storyline set to make fun of soap operas and bad book-to-movie adaptions just makes it all the more enjoyable. This miniseries is off the norm, like I expected due to the other series made on IFC. It takes all guidelines for filming a TV show, throws it out the window, burns it, compacts it to ash, and then resurrect their own rules from those ashes. The Spoils of Babylon takes all those hilarious things from SNL and transforms it into a full length TV show. Will Ferrell plays a fantastic burnout Author by the name of Eric Jonrosh, while Kristin Wiig plays her funniest role yet as Cynthia Morehouse, and Toby Maguire plays the oblivious and outrageous Devon Morehouse. The smart witty dialogue and the effects that are supposed to make you groan, all work together to make the best parody show in the last few years.
